HEAD OF VALEUR MEDIA & THE ONE WORLD DISCOVERY

How did I start?

I was born in East-Germany, where I started to take pictures at the age of 6 years. In my early life, my dream was to become a writer, director, or cameraman. When I was 18, the political system changed completely. The wall opened, and I had to face the new challenges of the Western system. Nowadays, it’s easy for young people to follow their dreams. At this time, it was something like a fight. I had to learn many things autodidactically. Thus, I don’t just produce stories for the magazine or the documentary, I live and feel them. I am always working with passion. Everythings comes from the bottom of my heart.

What does VALEUR means?

VALEUR isn’t another fashion magazine. With each issue, I try to tell authentic stories, like a movie. Fashion is a common theme, which leads the readers through the stories. VALEUR combines entertainment with social, ecological, or economic issues. VALEUR isn’t looking just for commercial success. It’s a story about dreams and authenticity. Thereby, VALEUR doesn’t mean luxury. The name stands for the traditional values of our society, like to trust each other, to be honest, and authentic. Instead of fake or bad news, VALEUR presents good news, because everything has a good and a bad side.

What is the special about VALEUR?

VALEUR is an independent magazine. It presents in-depth and entertaining reports completely free for you. Everything you see is well researched. VALEUR does not present for money, but only if there is a value behind it.

What is the ONE WORLD DISCOVERY?

ONE WORLD DISCOVERY continues what we started with VALEUR MAGAZINE. Our team explores the most beautiful and exciting places in our world. But not as aloof as a conventional TV documentary. Local people and the public are actively involved in this adventure. Everyone can become an editor, photographer, filmmaker, and explorer with a special story to tell. Ultimately, however, the point is that we all live in a beautiful world that must be preserved together. We carry the Berlin spirit into the world and show how wonderful it is to get to know people of all nations, cultures, and religions, to smile at each other, and to shake hands.
